's talk about some of the implications before we get to the blaming. the nato commission is being held up at this point, right, for general allen. they're still deciding if there's an implication for him in this. >> absolutely as a four-star you have a limited amount of time where you can serve in between positions and if you don't get confirmed which the nato position requires senate confirmation you revert back to the lower grade, so there's a real personal incentive to get this thing going as quickly as possible so he can move on to his next job and that clearly is in doubt. >> we talked about remember the 30,000 pages of documents which jill kelley tells howie, sunny, it's more like a couple hundred so that to me seems to be here and here and i get there's a difference between 300 or 400 e-mails and pages of documents. it's a little bit apples and oranges but she wouldn't tell howie, didn't let him read the e-mails, as you're a lawyer on this panel, how do you feel about that? >> you know, i'm concerned by it. it seems that when someone is being less than transparent, when there's som
. >> a number of nato countries permit women in combat, like canada, france, germany, and australia. the british do not. the secretary's action technically opens all jobs but the services can still apply for specific exemptions if women are not able to meet specific standards. >> what i worry about is lowering standards, saying that we have people on our team that can't carry their weight. >> they mean that literally. some soldiers are hauling around more than 100 pounds. tank loaders have to lift a shell out of a confined space, spin it around and push it into the breach. a senior defense official says that standard cannot be lowered. officials have identified specific physical requirements for each combat job. next they will turn that information over to scientists who can build physical tests to measure if a man or woman is fit for the front lines. >> at recruiting stayintions, y can't say lift this ammo and put it in the tank. >> the marines are going to take 400 male marines, 400 female marines and have them perform the physicals tasks for these jobs and come up with some sort of standard p
nato commander in europe. >> the secretary has asked the president and the president has agreed, to put his nomination on hold. >> reporter: but allen said he had done nothing wrong. the administration urged caution. >> i can tell you that the president thinks very highly of general allen and his service to his country. >> no one should leap to any conclusions here. >> reporter: that assessment was apparently wise. the pentagon last night issued a statement that allen had been cleared by a military inspector general. his nomination could be back on track soon. as for jill kelley, she and her husband call suggestions of an affair with allen painful and preposterous. kelley said that and other misleading junk reporting was emotionally exhausting and damaging to her family. kelley says her privacy was violated. she became a media target rather than a victim. george? >> she made a compelling case in that piece. okay, pierre, thanks very much. >>> george, now to a big backlash for prince harry overnight. the 28-year-old army captain under fire now for being so candid about life on the front
in very delicate conversations with other countries u.n. and nato forces ran themselves through surrogates and other countries so that we don't have to pack a a 1.4 million of our citizens in engagements again and again so we don't have to do that, there's nothing from the right wing saying you know what? i have problems with the domestic policies of this president or whatever but i'm not going to open up the door where i'm going to call him a muslim. i'm not going to do that and make it both a pejorative and or accusatory. >> don't you think this is online with the inherent lack of disrespect they seem to have for this president? >> lack of respect. >> lack of respect. disrespect or lack of respect. >> hal: i think there's two reasons why they have a lack of respect. one is they can't have respect for him and then get re-elected later in their mind. >> it is worse now than it's ever been with any other democratic president. >> hal: i agree. there is something knee-jerk and guttural about it. if you look at their -- their vilification of bill clinton, we forget because the economy -- we di
